The phone was defective, but the supplier made good with a refund.

Summary: This phone had some problems from the get-go. I ended up returning it after some deal breakers showed up - namely random rebooting on its own. Another was that the menu system did not give me the option to connect to Wi-Fi, one of the MAIN reason for getting this phone. I think the BIOS/ROM instructions may have been a little outdated. Oh, and the manual was Spanish-only. As I said, returned it, the seller gave me no flack about it.
Summary: At this time the prize should be much lesser. I noticed the prize was almost half back home. I bought this for my 11 year old son as a gift. Received an open box (Samsung)and looks like it's been used. Wifi is good - Unit is not as good like smart phone.
Summary: Ordered this phone unlocked as well as 3 other phones from Amazon to use on Walmart's Family mobile plan(T-mobile network). The other 3 phones worked flawless except for this one. Phone would not recognize sim card. Tried sim card from my Daughter's previous T-mobile account..did not work..Tried Sim card from my neighbors At&t phone..does not work..Exchanged phone through Amazon (no hassle what so ever) rec'd new phone with same problems.
Summary: I bought this phone hoping that it would be unlocked as advertised, it wasn't. Unfortunately, I already gave it as a gift so I can't get it back to return it and it'll cost to unlock it. I hate it when stores sell you products which are not consistent with what is advertised!
Summary: I really like the look and feel of this unit. Sleek design, thin and a winner for the price. (now the bad). The manual tells you "turn off wifi when not in use" otherwise battery is drawn. I didn't buy this phone to access the internet apps, but mostly for texting features. In the last couple of weeks, the cursor moves randomly when entering text, which makes it unusable for texting, and even worst it can make you crazy when trying to type the phone password.
Summary: don't buy this phone.... if you like to take pictures...no flash, pictures are dark and grainy even in good light and small. if you like to use the internet from your phone...yes i can get google, but not much else as it says there is insufficient memory, (even after i put extra memory in and put everything i could onto the shiney new memory card)no facebook, no hotmail, not even text based games, i did manage to get google street map up once but it was v small, didn't...
Summary: really basic phone, the buttons are too small, i couldnt get a signal in my house, and its not my area because ive never had a problem with any other phone and no one else has a problem, i could go on alll day about how bad this phone is. i was going to send it back but someone stole it out of my car. enough said.
